San Sebastián del Oeste, a Pueblo Mágico Near Puerto Vallarta

On our tour of San Sebastián del Oeste, a Pueblo Mágico up in the hills above Puerto Vallarta, we discovered a magical place.

This type of hibiscus flower is used to make a healthy herbal tea called agua de jamaica in Mexico. (How to make it.)

These are the coffee beans grown in an orchard full of coffee trees shaded by taller fruit trees.Organic coffee beans grown in an orchard in San Sebastian, Mexico After the coffee plantation, which was fascinating, we wandered around the town. As usual Al took the grand vista shots while I tended to focus on the little things that caught my eye such as this rusty Fanta sign in a building.Rusty Fanta sign in a building San Sebastian, Mexico Licor tienda sign.Licor tienda sign in San Sebastian, a Pueblo Magico up in the mountains above Puerto Vallarta Two chairs.

If I hadn’t already hit my booze limit by buying a tequila in town I would definitely have gone for this!

  2. I have to say the concept of organic tequila is funny. Do they make it without the worm in the bottle?? 🙂 Or would that make it vegan? Sorry, I couldn’t resist.
